1999 Peugeot 406 LX 2.0 HDI 110 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Last Peugeot for me
List of faults.
Air conditioning failed, rear suspension arms failed.
Front discs and pads twice.
Gear change bracket on engine broke, leaving me with only 3rd gear.
Low brake fluid warning always beeping, as switch under handbrake is a regular failure.
ABS failed, needed repair to rear sensor, very costly.
Air bag warning light flashes as driver seat connections are always poor.
The boot fills with water and the only solution is to drill a drainage hole.
Front wheel ball joints failed.
Tyre wear uneven.
Bottom pulley for auxiliary belt failed at £130 for a pulley wheel!!!, and then fitting on top.
Auxiliary belt failed, three different kinds fitted to my year!!
Drivers motorised door lock failed, passenger window winder failed, both motorised mirrors have failed.
There is more, but I have lost the will...
The ride started out as good. The whole car rattles, bits are loose everywhere, basically build is poor.
The tyre wear is high for a motorway drive, 15k if you are lucky, and drive normally.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
